DC Comics releases a special sequel to our favorite DC Heroes to the first issue of Dark Days The Casting. This is another comic of the Justice League taking on a new enemy. The story may be not just only the DC superheroes fighting for justice, but it also contains a very dark story like Batman.

At the moment when the story brings you, the Justice League faces a new enemy from magicians with dark magic to phantoms, to Greek mythology monsters, and to immortality. This all began in the Egypt on a museum where the wizards are chanting themselves to perform some ritual. However the other Justice League got their hands full, but Batman is helping Diana for all her troubles that she had, while the other Batman wanted The Joker to know the truth of his duplications of himself. That’s right, he cloned himself from a strange machine in order to engage in traveling back in time, when The Joker literary killed Batman. Of course, if that machine is still functional, Batman can see what lies into his mind and memory, but somehow all that he saw was darkness. Will Batman stay alive and learns the truth behind all this mess? Will darkness conquer all of the humanity?

In my reaction, I can only say on this comic is Batman. Batman of all superheroes, he is being multiplied because of some evil spell that the evil magicians were trying to do. There’s no doubt that they’re trying to perform a ritual of having darkness throughout the world. The evil wizards are performing a sacrifice to revive the Dark Knights from generations, but nobody knows what will do next. I’m kind of surprised how Batman is dealing with his own ancestors who were the Dark Knights from the past and from the future. More importantly, how were the wizards in Egypt were trying to do, can they see the future for Hawkman and Hawkgirl? They literary stroke his thunder knife down as if he would show them what they want to see. Since this is the first issue and all, I’m a bit lost out there, because Batman is cloning himself, and not just him but all the other Dark Knights from generations were gathered to the ritual. I want to know what comes next on the next issue because how are theses sorcerers are performing a ritual to start a war, I look forward to finding out.
